I love to share my journey with watercolors and oil painting. The wonder of nature through my photography helps me create images as I see and feel them onto the work of art I create. Over the years n fund raiser shows for Buckelew Programs, Marin County.

I am so thankful to have had wonderful creative mentors along my creative journey. I instruct Art workshops in Tucson, Arizona. Over the past twenty years traveling with home exchanges and friendship force I have had the opportunity to study art and museums in France, England, Scotland, Wales, Ireland, Italy, Canada, Hungary, Czech Republic, and Austria. In addition to traveling for six months and getting to know the wonderful art and artists in the United States.

In recent years I have studied with Cara Brown and the Magnolia Artist groups. Currently I enjoy exploring watercolors with Birgit O’Connor as a member of her ongoing Friday video group with other artists around the world.
